Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men! For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good.
In today’s verses, the psalmist gives us four reasons to praise the LORD.
His loving kindness resulted in the gift of salvation through Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection which eliminates death, and the opportunity of spending eternity with Him.
His wonderful deeds to your life. These include sustenance and provisions for daily living, and praying for you (Romans 8:34).
He satisfies the longings of your soul. The LORD is that ‘thing’ we all look for to bring fulfillment and satisfaction. We can look anywhere and everywhere, but true satisfaction is found only in Him.
With God, we lack for nothing. Jesus feeds your hungry soul with food from the Kingdom of God (Matthew 5:3). He offers an abundance of life through a wealth of blessings we don’t deserve but which He so desperately wants to give (John 10:10).
You would worry less if you praised more. Praise is the rehearsal of your eternal song. By grace, you learn to sing. Let us continually praise to God, because we have the countless blessings of His loving care. “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Psalm 150:6).
Prayer: LORD, thank You for Your kindness, Your wonderful deeds, for satisfying my soul, and for Your blessings. For these things I praise You! In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
